of the house. in the meantime, since it's the first day of the new year, it means some brand new laws are going into effect all across the u.s. some of them are out there. i'm telling you. like the one in kentucky. i'm not kidding. you can no longer release wild boors into the wild. and also in florida you no longer have to register your swamp buggy as a motor vehicle. then in california, i'm sorry to report that your dog can no longer be used to hunt a bear. worse, a bob cat. can't use your dog to hunt a bob cat in california anymore. while you may think that these strange new laws don't affect you, you might be surprised by these next ones because they might. in florida it used to be illegal to flash your headlights at oncoming drivers to warn them about a speed trap. you know that unwritten rule, winking a nudge between the folks on the road, it's road code. a new law makes it okay to do it now. there could be some loopholes though. joining me is joe jackson to talk about it. the first time i ever heard about that was a challenge to a law that you can't do that or you'll get a tick
